Today in the era of globalization, the entire world has turned into a small village where distance and time are no impediments, it has become a practical impossibility to conduct huge business and detailed transactions merely on verbal and vague assurances. In order to fulfill its goals, a business must rely on contracts to effectively sell its goods and services. To work smoothly and efficiently every business model needs to have legally enforceable contracts for which you’ll need an expert contract lawyer by your side.
A legal contract formally obligates two or more parties to perform or not to perform certain acts based on the terms and conditions of the contract as negotiated and discussed between the parties. The basic elements which every legal contract must have are offer, acceptance, and consideration, whether the same is oral or written in nature. B&B Associates LLP is a reputed law firm and is trusted for its experienced contract lawyers in Chandigarh who have been handling contract law matters for almost four decades.
The Contract law in India is primarily governed by The Indian Contract Act, 1872
The objective of the Contract Act is to ensure that the rights and obligations arising out of the contract are honored. Basic principles of the contract are described from Section 1 to Section 75, Indemnity and guarantee are mentioned in Section 124 to Section 128, Bailment is explained in Section 148 to Section 181, and Agency is described in Section 182 to Section 238.
Primary component for a contract to be binding, there must be an offer wherein one person signifies to __the other his willingness to do or not to do something with a view of obtaining the assent of the other person. An offer may be expressed or implied, it should be able to give rise to legal consequences and must be capable enough to build a legal relation.
Once an offer is made, it must either be accepted or the same be counter offered. If the offer is rejected, then there is no contract. Acceptance must be given by the person to whom the offer was initially made. Acceptance must be absolute and unqualified. Acceptance must be communicated and be given in a reasonable time.
After an offer is made and accepted, and now in order to bind the parties to the terms of the contract there must be an exchange of consideration. In simple words consideration is nothing but a price paid by the offeree to the offeror like goods in return of money, services in return of money, goods for goods or services for services.

When the competent parties to a contract agree upon the same thing in the same sense consent is accrued.
Void agreements are those agreements which are not enforceable under law. Therefore the parties have no legal remedies in case of void agreements.
A ‘voidable’ contract is an agreement which is enforceable by law at the option of one or more of the parties to the contract, but not at the option of the other or others.
A void agreement is void ab-initio, in essence, it is null since it is formed. But on the other hand, a void contract is one that is valid at the time of creation but eventually becomes void, due to certain circumstances, which are beyond the control of parties concerned.
A “contingent contract” is a contract to do or not to do something, if some event, collateral to such contract, does or does not happen.
A contracts to pay to B Rs.10,000 if team India wins World Cup 2020. This is a contingent contract. Therefore the enforceability of this contract is based on team India’s winning of the World Cup 2020. This is a contingent contract.
